Abstract

The study presented in this chapter is about the development of the professional identity of Dutch primary teacher educators from different generations. The focus is on how teacher educators develop individually during their professional career and how this individual development relates to changes in their profession. Data were collected and analysed using a biographical research methodology. Analysis of the results shows how participants constructed their identity as teacher educators influenced by their personal history in relation to the (historical) context of teacher education.
